"'One of the greatest moments in anybody's developing experience is when he no longer tries to hide from himself but determines to get acquainted with himself as he really is.' ~ Norman Vincent Peale"

Why are you hiding from yourself? Who you REALLY are, the greatness and vast beauty that dwells within you? Is it the bills? The heartbreak you suffered years ago? It really doesn't matter what your past failures or foibles were...unless you allow them to dictate, define and determine your future!

As long as there is still breath in your lungs, you have a chance to fulfill the awesome purpose you were created for! The universe awaits your introduction, but you must believe that greatness is within you in order to make an impact, no matter how small or large.

Today, I want to challenge all of you to pursue getting to know yourself in a deep, intimate way. If you have wild dreams, keep them up in the clouds, then, like Thoreau said, build the foundations underneath them to bring them into reality. I once heard a song say that "nothing comes from dreamers but dreams." Well, I beg to differ. Dreamers bring liberty, compassion, music, humor and love to the table...as long as they know who they are and don't get lost in the vicious cycle of doubt.

Are YOU a dreamer? Introduce yourself to your dream and don't let it go until it becomes reality!
